Despite the fact that Thanksgiving is fast approaching, we're still deep in the middle of the semester; don't stop working now!!
This week, we talked about how, in The Bluest Eye, Pecola sees herself in the dandelions, and transfers her negative feelings about herself onto the weeds. The Bluest Eye is rife with symbolism; the dandelions are only one example. Choose from one of the following symbols:
* marigold seeds
* baby dolls
* blue eyes
* Mary Jane candies
* Fun with Dick and Jane storybook
In your comment, explain where this symbol appears in the text (including page number and quotation), what this symbol represents, and why it's important to the story.
Your comment for this week's post will count as a homework assignment for the second marking period.
